Cold temps coming
September 8, 2005
No, we’re not starting winter – not yet. The chance of any precipitation this weekend, much less snow, was decreasing Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures will drop slightly, with lows in the low-30’s at night and a chance of frost. Saturday is also expected to be windy.
“We’re just going from slightly above freezing to slightly below,” said Jon Bonk, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Reno.
“The energy from the trough is breaking up,” Bonk said.
Colder temperatures would begin Sunday morning and last for a few days into next week.
With a frost, people might lose some annual plants, said Tom Snauffer of Nel’s Garden Center. Perennials will be OK, he said.
